The US Indigenous Data Sovereignty Network advocates for Indigenous Data Sovereignty at the tribal, state, national, and international levels. It is administratively based at the Native Nations Institute (NNI), a unit of the University of Arizona Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy. Broad participation from American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian data users, tribal leaders, information and communication technology providers, researchers, policymakers and planners, businesses, service providers, and community advocates is desired.
Together with the Advisory Council, USIDSN personnel at NNI will establish the USIDSN charter and program of action. The research, policy, and outreach activities of the USIDSN will be guided by and accountable to Indigenous data stakeholders via the USIDSN Advisory Council.
